We love this tea! It has beautifully balanced layers of autumn spices, aromas, and flavors. Unlike other pumpkin spice teas we've tried, the clove and ginger flavors do not overpower the scent or taste of this tea. It has a natural, delicate sweetness from the spices and at the same time does not lose the smoothness of good quality black tea as its base. This is an outstanding tea. We hope to also be able to buy it in a canister, as we would love to keep it on hand year round. We can't wait to try it iced as well as hot.
We love Tea Forté tea, and this one is good. But I don't think it has much on the regular pumpkin spice that you can buy at the supermarket. So the price tag is pretty high when you take that into account. I would have preferred to buy it in a canister, rather than in the presentation box, but this was the only way it was available and my girls are big fans of pumpkin spice tea. The boxes are beautiful gifts but it feels like a lot of waste for everyday use at home and the bags are not compostable like the loose tea is.
